Motif Investing is offering free trades in June. Motif Investing is a registered online brokerage firm offering an intuitive platform that empowers individuals to invest in real-world ideas through motifs. A motif is a carefully researched and balanced portfolio of up to 30 stocks reflecting a specific idea or trend. Examples include Renter Nation, Lots of Likes (most liked brands on Facebook) and All American (companies selling only in the US). Motifs are fully customizable—you can add and delete stocks, and change their weightings. You’ll pay just one low commission – and no management fees. And, you’ll get important diversification both within a motif and across motifs. Motif Investing offers brokerage accounts as well as no-fee retirement accounts, including Roth IRAs, Traditional IRAs, and Rollover IRAs.
*** The promotion is now over and regular pricing applies.*** From now through June 30, 2012, you can enjoy a $0 commission when you buy and sell any motifs or individual stocks in the motifs you own. Regular pricing: $9.95 per motif and $4.95 per stock. Other fees may apply. For details on fees and commissions, please visit their website.
The idea of motifs is interesting but I’m not sure about the cost and how well they will work. What do you think?
